Though not as exciting as some of the other wild GT 86 and BRZ concepts that debuted today at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon, the Gazoo Racing Subaru BRZ Race concept does feature a track-ready motif for the everyday consumer.

Instead of going to extremes – as is the case with a lot of Tokyo Auto Salon show cars – the Gazoo Racing Subaru BRZ Race concept features a collection of modifications that any enthusiast could bolt on or have installed without breaking the bank.

Though no engine modifications were done to the concept, it did shed the factory wheels for smaller and lighter 16-inch BBS wheels wrapped with 205/55/16 Dunlop rubber. While all those into the flushed stance craze would cringe at the sight of this BRZ, those that have experience on the track and autocrossing understand the reasoning behind the smaller, 16×6.5-inch wheel setup. A roll cage has been installed in the cabin for extra safety and to help stiffen up the chassis.
